International Exchange

Apart from studying on our Clear Water Bay campus, students may also elect to pursue a portion of their studies overseas through our popular International Exchange program.

Every year, the MScISM program partners with the London Business School (LBS), ESSEC Business School (ESSEC), and Aalto University Business School (Aalto) for a student exchange program. Selected MScISM students can study at LBS, ESSEC, or Aalto from April to July at no extra tuition fee. Students are required to cover their own accommodation costs and other expenses. In turn, LBS students study at HKUST in the Fall Term, whereas ESSEC and Aalto students experience our campus in the Spring Term.

Here at MScISM, we believe that international collaboration begins in the classroom. By meeting international students abroad and studying alongside them at HKUST, you’ll develop global perspectives and build cosmopolitan connections to help you thrive in an increasingly interconnected world.
